Creamy, delicious Pure Vermont Maple Cream... There's simply nothing like it!


Maple Cream You may be wondering what the difference is between Maple Butter and Maple Cream. Well, the difference is subtle, but essentially Vermont sugar-makers tell us that pure Vermont Maple Cream is produced by heating maple syrup, cooling, then stirring until a creamy thick consistency yields a spread that is delicious on pancakes, toast, doughnuts, English muffins, bagels, waffles, even baked potatoes.

Maple Butter on the other hand is a blend of maple syrup and butter, typical a recipe of two parts butter to one part syrup, producing a very similar spread as maple cream. We offer 100% pure Vermont Maple Cream (not Maple Butter), produced by local sugarers in Northern Vermont, because we believe pure is better!

A wonderful way to enjoy Vermont maple cream, or maple butter, is to dip fresh apple slices into it. Simply warm your pure maple cream in your microwave for not more than a few seconds (with the lid OFF), then start dipping. It's simply DELICIOUS!!

 

Pumpkin Muffins with Maple Cream Recipe


Pumpkin Muffins with Maple Cream Recipe When the autumn leaves start to turn and pumpkins seem to be everywhere here in Vermont, we get the urge to bake! One of our favorite fall recipes is delicious pumpkin muffins with maple butter or pure maple cream (made only with maple syrup, no butter mixed in). These muffins make a tasty breakfast during the foliage season, and especially on Thanksgiving morning. It's combining two wonderful flavors, pumpkin and maple! With a hot cup of coffee, these muffins are also a delicious mid-day snack! Give us your feedback.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs, preferably Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (canned solid pumpkin)
  • 4 Tbsp. melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pure Vermont Maple Cream or Maple Butter

In a medium mixing bowl or batter bowl sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, pumpkin puree, melted butter and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until incorporated. Be careful not to over mix the batter. Divide the batter evenly into 12-muffin pan and bake at 375 degrees F until golden brown (approx. 20-25 minutes). Remove from the oven and let cool in muffin pan for 10 minutes then transfer to muffin basket and serve with Vermont maple cream or maple butter.

**Warm maple cream in the microwave to 15-20 seconds or until the cream is soft and easy to spread.

Maple Cream on Baked Potatoes


Maple Cream on Baked Pototoes This is a particular favorite for PIECES OF VERMONT® website owner Rick Smith - maple cream on baked potatoes. When he's not making "Twice Baked Potatoes" with Vermont cheddar, he's spreading pure maple cream over a plain, ordinary baked potato. DELICIOUS!

Maple Butter Recipe


If you're interested in blended Maple Butter instead of pure Maple Cream, there are two ways to make it yourself. You can purchase Maple Cream and simply add your own butter, or start from scratch with maple syrup. To make maple butter from scratch... Whip 1 stick of butter in a food processor or with an electric beater until smooth. Dribble in syrup and mix well. Store refrigerated in a covered container. Keeps up to three weeks.

It's starts with maple sap...

It takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make just one gallon of pure maple syrup, which in turn is further boiled to make maple cream. Considering that maple sap is harvested in rural woods that are often still heavy with spring snowpack that hasn't melted yet, it's easy to understand how producing maple products is both very time-consuming, labor intensive, and expensive. But, producing maple cream is a Vermont tradition and once you've tried a spoonful we're certain you'll want to make it part of your breakfast options. Pure, Natural, and delicious!
